Family Reunion

We have been traveling nonstop lately. This past weekend we went to our family reunion. It was a great time and so fun to see all of Lucy's little cousins. She really played well with the kids, which was a huge relief to me because I was a little unsure of whether or not she was ever going to play nicely with other kids!

Her sleep schedule has been way out of whack for the past 2 weeks. She has been napping very little, waking up earlier than normal in the mornings, and going to bed way later than normal. It has made for some not very pretty melt downs for Miss Priss. She did sleep in this morning and is taking a good nap right now, but we are flying down to see Justin's parents tonight so I know she is going to get all messed up again. I don't mind her sleeping less, but I can't stand the whining and fussing that comes along with it. I know she needs more sleep than she has been getting. She has been fighting a pretty nasty cold, so maybe now that that is clearing up things will get better.

We are going to the beach with Justin's whole family and I can't wait!! It is going to be so much fun. Be watching in the next couple of days for lots and lots of beach photos. WOOO HOOO!! I am just so excited to see how Lucy reacts to the sand and ocean.

Here are some pictures from the family reunion.

Our cousin Ellie - she is so adorable and just loved Lucy. Lucy had such a great time with Ellie and Lexi.

We just got back from the beach this weekend and it was so fun! It's the perfect place for kids Lucy's age - the sand and surf are awesome to play in for hours! You guys are going to have a ball. Wish we were still there!

Love you guys!!!
